Come visit the beautiful Hernando Heritage Museum and see some or all of the
11,000 artifacts on display there...Open Tues. thru Sat....12:00 to 03:00..The museum
is home of the Brooksville Raid which was voted by the Florida reenactors as the best and largest civil war reenactment in Florida.
Friday January 14th, 2005
We feel by inviting the school children to a special school day demonstration of how life was during the civil war, it gives them lasting memories of an era not taught too much in Florida schools. By giving them a "living history" lesson we feel that it will leave them with a new view of history.
In October, we will be e-mailing the superintendent of schools in surrounding areas, so they can inform you to make reservations for your students. It will cost $l.00 for everyone who attends. Your $1.00 donation entitles you to a free admission accompanied by an adult during the actual event. There are camps set up with first person soldiers and sutlers (vendors) will be open, but there are no battles being shown. The soldiers will show however, how they loaded and fired a cannon and various other activities associated with the way of life during the civil war. We start at 9:00 a.m. and it ends at 2:00 p.m. Bring a bag lunch, the Scouts will have drinks available for sale.
If you home school, you are also welcome to attend. Just call the museum or email us telling us how many people. We need this to have an idea of how many to expect. In the past we have had a cutoff at 1,000 kids, but last year we had over 1800 kids. Sutlers will be open for business.
